Few life events can bring about the excitement of getting married. Likewise, few events can have as big of an impact on your finances. With proper planning, life insurance can help provide a solid financial foundation for you and your spouse.
The primary purpose of life insurance is to provide for those who are dependent on you in the event of your untimely death. Often, that means your policy will benefit a spouse and children (if any) by paying off debt and setting aside enough for living expenses.
Even if the two of you choose to keep separate bank accounts, it is important to include your spouse when making decisions about life insurance. You both may benefit from more appropriate levels of coverage.
